LOS ANGELES (KABC) — School Gardens are sprouting up at some Los Angeles-area public schools.

The nonprofit group Enrich LA is helping build vibrant “learning gardens,” such as the one at Thomas Starr Middle School in Los Feliz.

“Children today are not doing so well eating-wise, and we think one of the reasons why is they don’t know where food is coming from,” said Thomas O’Grady, director of Enrich LA.

Students create, maintain and enjoy the fruits of their labor.

“My favorite thing to eat at this garden is radishes,” said Colby Flores, a 7th grader from Thomas Starr King Middle School. “We grow tomatoes. We grow lettuce and a lot of herbs.”   GO TO ABC 7
